Acting on a tip police search for Herron in Earlton, Cairo
Patricia Doxsey is reporting for the Daily Freeman the state police last week renewed efforts to locate Audrey Herron, the Greene County resident who disappeared nearly 20 years ago after finishing her shift as a nurse at the Columbia-Greene Long Term Health Care Center in Catskill. Acting on a tip, the state police at Catskill and the New York State Police Underwater Recovery Team searched Maurer’s Lake and Potuck Reservoir, both located on Schoharie Turnpike in Earlton, as well as a portion of the Catskill Creek in South Cairo. However, it was a dead end. No evidence or information was developed from the search. The last time the 31-year-old mother of three was seen, she was walking toward her 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee at about 11 p.m. on August 29, 2002. After her disappearance, police and volunteers conducted ground searches by retracing her possible routes home to Freehold, covering roughly 120 miles of roads and trails. They were unable to locate Herron or her vehicle. Herron was described at the time of her disappearance as white, five feet tall and 105 pounds with hazel eyes and light brown hair. She last was seen wearing green medical scrubs and a blue turtleneck top. Anyone with information regarding Herron’s disappearance is asked to call the state police in Catskill at (518) 622-8600.
